my brain: but you haven't solved this yet
me: whatever, work/life balance is important

@ellotheth These are the moments where I perform manual labor for a while. Something that requires little thought to do. During this, ill either find the solution, or I'll transition to a not thinking about it state. I'm thankful this works for me, as it doesn't work for everybody.

@ellotheth @vollink that's a phenomenal idea, I need to try that. I know yard work in particular gets into my head and I literally fantasize about pulling weeds (so satisfying!) - seems like it would do a good job of distracting me
